    Thanks for submitting this request! Based on your feedback, we’ve fixed that issue and it’s now available in production as part of the new sheet tabs bar UX. We invite you to go and try the new design and improved functionality of the sheet tabs, including a new drop-up sheet menu. We’d be happy to get your feedback!
    Thank you,

  2. Embedded SharePoint Online Excel file doesn't display horizontal scrollbar

    When embedding a Excel online file into normal CSS webpage using codes, Online Excel file doesn't display horizontal scrollbar.
    The only way to get to the data to the right of the view port is to click on a cell and then use the right arrow key to scroll to the right.

    Codes referenced from this official article.

  3. Demo script - return entire table content

    Would be good with a demo script showing how to return an entire tables content. Assume its something like
    let entireTable = workbook.getTables('Table1');
    return entireTable;
    Demo script could include converting data to table first, then returning entire data content.

    This code below will achieve that:

    function main(workbook: ExcelScript.Workbook) {
    const entireTable = workbook.getTable(‘Table1’);
    return entireTable.getRange().getTexts();
    // Or return values
    // return entireTable.getRange().getValues();
    }

    This script will allow you to add a row to a worksheet at the end:

    function main(workbook: ExcelScript.Workbook) { const sheet = workbook.getWorksheet(‘Sheet2’); // SAMPLE DATA – Use 1-dimensional array to represent the row to add const dataToAdd = [‘22773342’, ‘markdown-preview’, ‘MIT License’, ‘https://api.github.com/licenses/mit’]; const startCellToUpdate = sheet.getUsedRange(true).getLastRow().getCell(0,0).getOffsetRange(1,0); console.log(startCellToUpdate.getAddress()); const targetRange = startCellToUpdate.getResizedRange(0, dataToAdd.length-1); targetRange.setValues([dataToAdd]); }
  5. Add Chart design feature.

    Hi,

    We’re happy to announce that we’re currently rolling out a format task pane for charts. This enables many of the formatting actions you may be familiar with on Excel Desktop.

    Once the update reaches you, it can be accessed through the “Format” button, found by right-clicking on a chart or by selecting a chart and navigating to the “Chart” tab that appears in the ribbon at the top of the screen. Thank you for your continued feedback and responses.

    Thank you for your continued feedback and responses.

    Thanks!

  7. Examine copy and paste function within the browser version of Office 365 Excel

    Copy and paste function is so hit or miss in Office 365 Excel.

    For example, formatting of tables is completely lost even when I'm copying and pasting from one tab of Office 365 Excel to another.

  8. right click paste options

    Currently in Excel desktop when you copy something to your clipboard the right click menu includes a Paste Special drop down menu, as well as icons for paste, paste values, paste formula, etc etc

    In Excel online the only way you can access Paste Special options is the long way round on the Home menu. Can the Paste Special drop down menu be added to the right click (or better still the icons)?

  9. Bug: Formulas not displayed in the Excel interface language

    In Excel online, the formulas are not displayed in the same language that the interface is. For example, interface in English and formulas in French.

  10. Allow the time and date to be corrected or the time zone to be adjusted in Excel Online

    Not so much an idea as a fix. MS should make it so you can correct your timezone (time and date) within Office Online so time and date related formulas are correct.

    Hey all, we’d to share that we’ve fixed the time zone on Excel for the Web workbooks to be the time zone taken from the operating system, instead the time zone taken from the host account.

    Following your feedback, we understood that the main pain is the difference between the host time zone (that was set previously for Excel for the Web) and the OS time zone (that applies for Excel desktop app).
    Now, the time zone will be adjusted to be the same as in your device.

    This new capability is supported in SharePoint Online, OneDrive and Exchange hosts.

    Thank you for voting and influencing our priorities. Keep voting for other ideas you want us to address.

    Thanks, Excel team.

  11. Should have vertical list of sheet's name.

    When my file have many sheet. I have a horizontal list to select the sheet i need to see but is too many i must click three dots symbol to show for each until i see the sheet i need. It hard and take more time. So i suggest that we should have a vertiabe list of sheet name when right click on three dots symbol. That's all.

    Current versions of Excel indicate who the user is, if known, that has the file locked. Please note in the help article that Steps 3 and 4 point out that you need to use a version of Excel that supports co-authoring in addition to storing the file in a location that supports co-authoring. Please see this help article: https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Excel-file-is-locked-for-editing-by-another-user-6fa93887-2c2c-45f0-abcc-31b04aed68b3.

  18. There is no way to select non-adjacent cells as in normal Excel.

    In order to tot-up figures, it is useful to be able to use Ctrl+click and select different cells. There is no functionality in Excel online to do this currently.

    When using Excel Online, if you add a filter, everyone using that spreadsheet in Excel Online will see that filter. Can you please add an option for only the one user to see that filter?
